James began this overland trip across Africa at the urging of his best friend, John, who envisioned it as the beginning of a journey around the world. It would have no definite end or any particular purpose other than seeing the world. It was to become the most challenging experience of his life and the most rewarding. During the journey, he met his wife-to-be and found a love he had never known before.
This book is a record of a personal journey of a lifetime that continues to have a profound influence even after forty years.
